Designing data-intensive Web applications by Stefano Ceri ( )
20 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 1,623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The most prominent Web applications in use today are data-intensive. Scores of database management systems across the Internet access and maintain large amounts of structured data for e-commerce, on-line trading, banking, digital libraries, and other high-volume sites. Developing and maintaining these data-intensive applications is an especially complex, multi-disciplinary activity, requiring all the tools and techniques that software engineering can provide. This book represents a breakthrough for Web application developers. Using hundreds of illustrations and an elegant intuitive modeling language, the authorsall internationally-known database researcherspresent a methodology that fully exploits the conceptual modeling approach of software engineering, from idea to application. Readers will learn not only how to harness the design technologies of relational databases for use on the Web, but also how to transform their conceptual designs of data-intensive Web applications into effective software components. * A fully self-contained introduction and practitioner's guide suitable for both technical and non-technical members of staff, as well as students. * A methodology, development process, and notation (WebML) based on common practice but optimized for the unique challenges of high-volume Web applications. * Completely platform- and product-independent; even the use of WebML is optional. * Based on well-known industry standards such as UML and the Entity Relationship Model. * Enhanced by its own Web site (http://www.webml.org), containing additional examples, papers, teaching materials, developers' resources, and exercises with solutions." -- OCLC

Search computing challenges and directions by Stefano Ceri ( )
9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Search computing, which has evolved from service computing, focuses on building the answers to complex search queries by interacting with a constellation of cooperating search services, using ranking and joining of results as the dominant factors for service composition. The field is multi-disciplinary in nature, and takes advantage of contributions from other research areas such as knowledge representation, human-computer interfaces, psychology, sociology, economics and legal sciences. The book is divided into three parts. The first part includes some visionary contributions on the latest trends in search, which is becoming increasingly task-oriented and is starting to use ontological knowledge in order to manage complex queries. The second part explores background and related technologies, which can be considered as parallel fields of research, useful both for setting the theoretical premises for search computing and for providing a technological framework for building search computing systems and applications. The third part delves into the conceptual and technological problems and issues arising when dealing with search computing as a new search paradigm. It provides a unified view of the results of the Search Computing project as achieved exactly one year after its starting date

Deductive and object-oriented databases : third international conference, DOOD '93, Phoenix, Arizona, USA, December 6-8, 1993 : proceedings by Stefano Ceri ( Book )
19 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Advances in database technology, EDBT '88 : International Conference on Extending Database Technology, Venice, Italy, March 14-18, 1988, proceedings by Joachim W Schmidt ( Book )
13 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume represents the outcome of the International Conference on "Extending Database Technology", held in Venice, Italy, in March 1988. It contains the major dimensions into which database technology is currently being pushed by the needs of new applications and pulled by the chances of novel developments in hardware and systems architecture. The two broad areas covered are: extended database semantics: data models and data types, databases and logic, complex objects, and expert system approaches to databases; and new architectures and increased database systems support: novel transaction models, data distribution and replication, database administration and access efficiency. Since an increasing amount of database research and development is done through international cooperation and within joint projects (ESPRIT, EUREKA, industrial cooperations), a substantial part of the book is dedicated to representing about a dozen advanced database projects on data- and knowledge-based systems and on distributed database applications by their aims, status, and results
Logic programming and databases by Stefano Ceri ( Book )
15 editions published between 1989 and 2012 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book presents a systematic overview of the interaction between logic programming and database systems. Merging these two technologies permits new types of systems which extend the frontiers of computer science and open up new applications, such as deductive databases, knowledge base management systems, and expert database systems. The book opens with an overview and an introductory review, then is divided into three parts devoted to - the coupling of Prolog with relational databases, - the precise definition of the Datalog language, and - the description of query optimization techniques and extensions of Datalog. A closing chapter reviews the main projects on the integration of logic programming and databases, including LDL, Nail! and the Fifth Generation Project. The presentation achieves a balance between theoretical and technological issues, by providing a careful introduction to the underlying paradigms and their theoretical foundations, and by stressing the problems involved in achieving efficiency when interfacing logic programming formalisms with large databases. The book is thus suited for members of both the database and logic programming communities. The authors use a tutorial style complete with examples and exercises to introduce students as well as researchers to this developing field
Search computing broadening web search by Stefano Ceri ( )
7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Search computing, which has evolved from service computing, focuses on building the answers to complex search queries by interacting with a constellation of cooperating search services, using the ranking and joining of results as the dominant factors for service composition. The field is multi-disciplinary in nature and takes advantage of contributions from other research areas such as knowledge representation, human-computer interfaces, psychology, sociology, economics, and legal sciences. This book is the third in the Search Computing series and contains a collection of 16 papers, which in most cases were contributed to several workshops during 2011 organized by members of the Search Computing project in the context of major international conferences: ExploreWeb at ICWE 2011, Very Large Data Search and DBRank at VLDB 2011, DATAVIEW at ECOWS 2011, and OrdRing at ISWC 2011. The papers provide very useful insights on search computing problems and issues. The book has been divided into four parts focussing on: extraction and integration; query and visualization paradigms; exploring linked data; and games, social search and economics

Web information retrieval by Stefano Ceri ( )
6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With the proliferation of huge amounts of (heterogeneous) data on the Web, the importance of information retrieval (IR) has grown considerably over the last few years. Big players in the computer industry, such as Google, Microsoft and Yahoo!, are the primary contributors of technology for fast access to Web-based information; and searching capabilities are now integrated into most information systems, ranging from business management software and customer relationship systems to social networks and mobile phone applications. Ceri and his co-authors aim at taking their readers from the foundations of modern information retrieval to the most advanced challenges of Web IR. To this end, their book is divided into three parts. The first part addresses the principles of IR and provides a systematic and compact description of basic information retrieval techniques (including binary, vector space and probabilistic models as well as natural language search processing) before focusing on its application to the Web. Part two addresses the foundational aspects of Web IR by discussing the general architecture of search engines (with a focus on the crawling and indexing processes), describing link analysis methods (specifically Page Rank and HITS), addressing recommendation and diversification, and finally presenting advertising in search (the main source of revenues for search engines). The third and final part describes advanced aspects of Web search, each chapter providing a self-contained, up-to-date survey on current Web research directions. Topics in this part include meta-search and multi-domain search, semantic search, search in the context of multimedia data, and crowd search
